Behind the Wheel Training in Dana Point

Welcome to Safety 1st Driving School - Dana Point's #1 Choice for Driver's Education!

Our primary goal is creating safe, skilled drivers and we go above and beyond to achieve that. Here’s how:

1. More driving time.Behind the Wheel Training in Dana Point

Most schools log about 15 miles per Behind-the-Wheel session. We log 30-40 miles. We’re proud of our brand new, top Safety Rated cars, and we’re not afraid to use them! Our students’ safety and well-being far outweighs the extra money we spend on gas money and car maintenance.

2. No piggybacking.

California law allows more than one student driver in the car during Behind-the-Wheel lessons. We don’t. Your Behind-the-Wheel time is YOUR time, and we are 100% focused on YOU.

3. Our car is your car.

No car? No problem! We will pick you up and drop you off (ON TIME) for every Behind-the-Wheel lesson. You can even use our car for your final DMV exam!

4. Our Unique Grading System keeps you (parents too) in the know. 

After every Behind-the-Wheel lesson, you receive a grade, detailing your strengths and weaknesses. We discuss this grade with you and your parents so you’ll know what to practice own your own time, and what we will focus on going forward.

6. Our instructors are awesome.

All our instructors are licensed by the California DMV, plus Safety 1st’s own rigorous training requirements. We show up to every lesson on time – clean, professional, and focused on you.

7. Our Online Course rocks.

Work on your own time, at your own pace for only $29, and receive all the relevant information you need to pass your written exam. It’s fun and interactive, and our IT support is local, so any problems you run into will be addressed right away. Register here. 

We don’t just want you to pass your DMV exams to boost our pass rates – we want you to understand the concepts and develop the skills necessary to become a safe driver in Orange County.
